Sassy Bella Tin...

I have a TON of these tins(Target $ Spot) and many others so I decided it was time to stop hoarding them! This project was a bday combo gift for my dear friend Brooke. She is the best "cake diva" I know. She turns boxed cake mixes into masterpieces:))) I knew this "cakeabella" stamp would be perfect for her!! It was a bit hard trying to duplicate her red hair though...the bella could never do justice to how beautiful my gf's hair is...so I ended up doing blonde. I started by cutting the base(Cranberry CM cs) just a tad shorter so you can still see some of the tin. The Cranberry CS is also faux stitched. The PP has lemons, pears, and cherries on it(Recipe Time) and I also pulled these colors out to doll up the Bella! She is painted with re-inkers(bashful blue,red, & certainly celery)and a blender pen. She is matted with CM cranberry, SU! bashful blue, and CM green. I used the ticket corner punch by SU! and added MM aged brads. I did the same steps for the sentiment and used my Karen Foster snap stamps for "cake diva". Lastly, I added some green gingham(Mike's) thru my punched holes and tied off. I filled the inside with fresh baked brownies and tied off with an Olive Garden GC. She truly is a wonderful friend who has helped make my time here in NY just a little bit easier:)

Very, very cute. I love to see how people use their different tins. I have red hair and when I make myself a bella I use a Really Rust marker. it's not perfect, but it's the closest thing I've found.
